Once again David Warner announced himself in a massive way to the fans. He had a scintillating return to the ODI format of the game after completing his ban. Later, failed to replicate the same in red-ball cricket but he proved his mettle on his return to T20I format of the game against Sri Lanka on Sunday. More than his century, his donation to the Zaidee’s Rainbow Foundation has made him stay on the headlines.

David Warner scored 56-ball century:

David Warner smashed his maiden Twenty20 international century as Australia kicked off their home summer with a 134-run thrashing of Sri Lanka at Adelaide Oval on Sunday. He joined Glenn Maxwell and Shane Watson as the only Australians to have notched up international hundreds in all formats of the game.

Warner smashed an unbeaten 56-ball 100, getting to his century in the last ball of the innings. The skipper Aaron Finch (64) and the promoted Glenn Maxwell (62) provided the perfect complement to Warner’s return after a forgettable tour of England in the Ashes.

Spinner Adam Zampa finished with 3-14 to be the pick of the bowlers, with fast bowlers Mitchell Starc and Pat Cummins grabbing two wickets each. Meanwhile, David Warner was named as the man of the match for his stunning unbeaten century.

Following the presentation, David Warner donated all the money he received to Zaidee’s Rainbow Foundation. He donated 500$ to the foundation, who will look after kids suffering from a disease, which required a huge sum of money to get the surgery done.

Speaking of the man of the match performance, David Warned quoted ”It means a lot to contribute to the team and put us in great position. It was a good milestone but got a great total on the board and it’s always tough to chase a big one in Australia. Sometimes it’d be tough with no rotation of strike. One of us had to go hard against the new ball. Pradeep’s skills are excellent, he’s a world-class Test player I reckon. You forget how busy the schedule actually is. You always get good support here in Australia. We thrive on people coming and watching us.”
